approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Mike's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Mike Love comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Mike Love - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Mike Love" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Mike a little better. This page describes the disguise Love wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Mike Love is always questioning and learning, and he seems young and alive no matter what his chronological age, for his mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. Mike Love has a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and he learns easily, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Love can be somewhat of a scatterbrain, for he tends to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. He needs and craves variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
Articulate, clever, often funny and witty, he is always a refreshing and interesting conversationalist. Mike Love enjoys meeting and interacting with a variety of different people. He is friendly, flirtatious, and charming in a playful way, and no matter how badly he may be feeling, Mike never comes across as melancholic or somber. He may seem frivolous to other, more serious souls. Mike Love has a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevent him from taking himself or life too seriously. In fact, Love may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important.
In general, Mike Love responds to life mentally and objectively rather than emotionally, and he may not empathize with people very much. Mike does not like to be weighed down with too much responsibility or with others' emotional burdens. Furthermore, if he cannot fully grasp something with his reason and logic, Love will often choose to ignore it, including his own and other people's irrational feelings, desires, and needs.
Consistency and reliability are not great virtues of Love's and his life is apt to be full of changes and movement due to his restlessness. Mike Love becomes nervous and fidgety if things are not moving quickly enough. He is interested in what is current and up-to-date, the newest trends in thought or style.
His gifts are a quick mind, verbal facility, a flair for language, social sophistication and polish, the ability to communicate, converse, and build bridges between people and between ideas. Mike Love tends to become an incessant chatterbox or gossip if he does not have work or other activities that utilize his mental, verbal, and social skills.
Despite the fact that his core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, Mike Love has a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in his environment. He may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, Mike Love often does not get the full recognition he wishes for.
Mike Love is extremely sensitive to all of the incoming impressions and energies around him, and at times he can be overcome or dominated by more forceful personalities. Learning to establish clear boundaries is important for him, as Mike Love tends to become enmeshed emotionally and/or psychically with whomever he is with. He may have the chameleon's trait of seeming to become the people or person he is with the most.
Mike Love appears sympathetic and approachable. Because he uses his feelings and intuition in assessing people, others sense that Love understands their feelings or their personal situations. At the same time Mike Love really wants people to know how he feels, and their care and support are very important to him.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is youthfulness about Mike's manner and appearance regardless of his chronological age. Mike Love also always appears busy and active, and somewhat restless. Love needs mental stimulation from his environment, or he will rapidly get bored.
It could be hard for Mike Love to hold his ground and he may be taken advantage of easily. Love displays little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.
